Valid index names


(Eric Jain) #1

It looks like elasticsearch doesn't allow mixed case index names. Is
this a Lucene limitation, or an elasticsearch feature to protect
Windows users?

Not a big deal, just a minor annoyance for people using Base-36-
encoded UUIDs for index names...

Its not a Lucene limitation (Lucene is not even aware of it). Yes, its mainly done to protect mixed cases problems with file systems.
